And the price for Leroy Hill just went up...

Baltimore Ravens LB Bart Scott just signed with the New York Jets for six years and 48 million dollars, a full 12 million over Leroy's reported 6 year, 36 million dollar offer.

Bart Scott is a full 2 years older than Leroy, was undrafted, and played alongside some great linebackers over the years. Both players are about 6-2, 240 lb linebackers who are heavy on the tackling ability, light on the sacks.

The key difference between the two players is that while Leroy Hill has continually missed games in his shorter career, Bart Scott has been healthy during his tenure with the Ravens.

 

Still though, with Scott a full two years older than Leroy, the market has been set higher for LBs in the mold of Leroy Hill / Bart Scott.  You have to think Leroy's agent is holding out for a much larger contract than the one reportedly offered earlier.

Don't give it to him.

If Ruskell and Leroy can't get a contract done, this severely limits the Seahawks ability to make moves this offseason, with the Franchise Tag eating up so much of the cap.

If that is the case, then you have to question whether tagging Leroy was the right thing to do.

What is everyones thoughts on this?
